Catch Me If You Can comes to Galveston, TX for a month this summer. This?true story of Frank Abagnale Jr. captivated the entire world. The story was told in Book, Broadway Play, and Featured Film. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks take us on an around the world chase in the film version. Leonardo plays an amazing con man while Tom is an FBI agent chasing him.
Before the age of 21, Frank Abagnale Jr. successfully passed himself off as a Doctor, Lawyer, and an Airline Pilot. He did this not just to strangers, but to Industry Officials as well. Somewhere along the way he figures out how to forge all kinds of checks and now money is no object. This true story is so outrageous that it is difficult to believe. It is true, and it is wildly entertaining, and exciting. Frank Abagnale Jr. has such an engaging personality that you find yourself cheering for him in all of his efforts to con people.

The story is so intriguing and compelling that I can not wait to see this production. I thought the movie was fun, fast paced, and quite delightful. The Frank Abagnale Jr. story is much like Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid,?in that you wanted him to succeed. Add the high octane music of the 60’s and you have a great evening of entertainment. In case you haven’t seen the movie I won’t tell you how it ends. Go see for yourself. If you need a place to stay Contact Marilyn at 281.773.4210 for help!
